Today, we use digital equipment like cell phones and IPads all the time. We use them to listen to music, read news, play games and talk with friends and family. One recent study shows that eighty-four percent of cell phone users say they could not go a day with no phones. Another study shows that more than fifty percent of cell phone users have a look at their phones for messages even when there's no warning sound.
What if you put away your digital equipment for one day? You can try it on the US Unplugged Day. It is on the second Friday of March each year. On this day, people don't use digital equipment for 24 hours.
Many people find this Unplugged Day to be longer than most days. “Without my cell phone, my breakfast was too short and I didn't know what to do next,” one person said after trying this day last year.
But others like the idea. “My friend and I had dinner in the evening. We could really hear what the other person was saying,” another person said.
Unplugging can be difficult. But it also helps people slow down and think about their lives. At the end of the day, you may find that you don't miss your digital equipment that much.
Join us for the Unplugged Day and start a different life：say Hello to the people in your street, neighborhood and city , have a nice meal with your family or read a book to your child.
